We had the set feast menu which certainly started very well. There was a selection of kebab,chicken tikka,bhajis, samosas and pakoras. All very tasty and well presented on a sizzle plate. The mains were slightly disappointing apart from the beef vindaloo but this may have just been my preferences. Avoid the wine as ours was decidedly dubious! The beer looked... More

We did a take out for a group of eight people. With everybody taking a different dish we got a fair overview of the quality of the food. It took 45 minutes to prepare the food but it must be said, that they pre warned us and served drinks to soften the waiting experience. The food was of excellent quality... More
